Hope you enjoying this splendid sunny weather minus the fact there have been numerous earthquakes in the past week. Yikes, the end really may be near guys so you better live it up. Real talk... I’m sure you will all be just fine, but that doesn’t mean you still shouldn’t dance like you are white girl wasted somewhere in this lovely city.

If you need some suggestions, here are some disco innuendos that may tickle your fancy….
FRIDAY JANUARY 17
HOTT LEATHER & MORE/PLAYGURL
The Chic ones unite once again for another addition of PLAYGURL. Come one, come all, but make sure you come correct and ready to worship a dancefloor with baby making good musique. San Francisco legend Ambrosia Salad headlines this enticing affair with others not to be missed.
“Rising from the sweat and glitter left from 2013. There is a new city. A city that unites and invites all it's people to stand freely. To march gayly. To dance triumphantly. PLAYGURL is the beacon in which all that enter are enveloped in energy and harmony.”
Hosted by thee lovely: Natology
“I put the ART in pARTy.”
Disco, house and beyond. HOTT CITY is your future and your past.

No biggie….NOT! It's totally a big deal guys.

Silent Frisco founder Motion Potion will face off with his patented 3-hour extended set of Talking Heads-related material, including 7 of his own edits and remixes.

If these bands don't make you smile then you have no soul. Just saying…
FRIDAY JANUARY 17
SPLIT SECS & MORE/VSSL
Last January, Split Secs came through and took the virginal VSSL warehouse party for a fucking RIDE.
It is now one year later, and the VSSL collective have honed in on their party god skills while Alexandre & TK have been sharpening their claws & building their arsenal.
The boys return to the controls Friday and are prepared to give 2014 a proper ringing in. If you caught them at Rhondapolis on NYE, or at their own recent warehouse party, Machine, you know what I'm talking about. Putting the FUN in FUNK with raw industrial grooves that'll have you drenched in sweat from liberating those limbs all night in the impressive undisclosed location.
RSVP for a NEW, different, secret, private warehouse location:http://restlessnites.com/vssl
Oh, and to celebrate the return of the Secs, the first 50 people through the door are paying just $5. Bring a (cheap) date.

MINIMAL EFFORT bends and shapes to suit genres held dear to all house music connoisseurs.

SUNDAY JANUARY 19
Oh my GOTH…
It's that time again creatures of the night with a passion for eclectic brooding beats. Sunday's remain simply fresh to death with the Overthrow's fashionably fierce residency at downtown location One Eyed Gypsy. Not gonna lie, I do miss the presence of the vintage skee ball machines a bit, but the new space from their absence has already been filled with even more alluring faces to battle on the noir dance floor. With an always evolving cast of dj characters from all over the damn globe you never really know what to expect, but trust, you are in for a sexually charged sinister treat. One ferocious fusion of audio and visual art, LIL DEATH caters to many walks of life. The common thread being an appreciation for astral tunes.
